I met my husband in college and our girlfriend through a LARP group.

I have a few good ones, our most recent was actually a woman I dated when I was 16(1990) I ran into her at the grocery store, she and my wife hit it off, we invited her to join our relationship, but that only lasted 6 years.

Then there's our current girlfriend, we met her 15 years ago at a metaphysical shop, her marriage collapsed, she showed an intrest, and things just happened.

Finally, my wife, I met through an ex I was fooling around with at the time, she invited me over for a threesome, which she then fell asleep and made it a twosome just my wife and I, we've been together ever since.
37, M, married, 15 years, in a happy triad for the same amount of time. It's not always easy, but it sure is fun.

I picture him as very masculine, barrel-chested, and strong, a kind of a cross between a sexy, burly auto mechanic wearing overalls over his bare chest, his face smudged with oil, and the Tin Man ("Oil Can, Oil Can."). What an imagination I have, hahaha!
In my head, he also has a really awesome mustache.

Though I am single, this is also how I met my most recent partner.

Annual halloween party at the monthly fetish ball in Winnipeg.

I thought he was like 18, I was 24... turns out he was 35. But painted all in blue, and he's the type to joke around, so he came off as young.

Then we didn't meet again until a karaoke night through the same crowd a couple months later. He played with the back of my head when he drove me home. A month later, I asked him to come visit and he basically never moved out
As I am sure any cat owner will be able to tell you,
someone else putting you in a box is entirely different
from getting into a box yourself.

Of all places. I met Sara at a dog park. Our dogs became fast friends, we started talking. Invited her to a BBQ I was having. She showed up, stayed after everyone left. we talked, made out.. everything is history from there.
